<p> <a href="http://dmapub.dma.org/" ><b>Dayton Microcomputer Association</b></a><br> The Dayton Microcomputer Association put on their first Computerfest in 1976 and it's been growing ever since. Despite the growing sophistication in personal computer technology, the DMA believes there is still a need for users groups.</p> <p>What's unusual about this Computerfest is that it is a nonprofit endeavor and that the entire show is put on by volunteers.</p> <p><b>Ohio Technology Access Project</b><br> The Dayton, Ohio community runs one of the nation's leading computer recycling programs. Volunteers check out the old machines, clean off the hard drives, install a new operating system, and then turn them over to people who can't afford to buy a computer.</p> <p><a href="http://www.ncr.com/index.asp" ><b>NCR</b></a><br> NCR has become the world's leading vendor of ATM's and it is working now to push that technology in several new directions such as a new Web enabled ATM that will let you do Web surfing while you do your banking transactions.</p> <p>NCR is working on new web terminals that would go into kitchen appliances like refrigerators or microwave ovens. NCR thinks the kitchen is the ultimate location for Internet home appliances and NCR is working is on an automated check-out station at supermarkets.</p> <p>Another NCR innovation is new technology to do away with PIN numbers at ATM's by scanning the iris of your eye to identify you.</p> <p><a href="http://www.lexisnexis.com/lncc/" ><b>Lexis Nexis</b></a><br> Dayton, Ohio is also the home of Lexis Nexis, the world's largest online publisher. Lexis Nexis started the online research business more than 30 years ago. They are now evolving into a web based product, currently running 70 different URL's. Indeed Lexis Nexis sees itself as the original e-commerce company.</p> <p><a href="http://www.meci.com/" ><b>Mendelson's</b></a><br> If you are a tinkerer or inventor, Mendelson's is Mecca! They have over 400,000 items in their inventory, from computer peripherals to every kind of electronic component you could think of.</p> <p><a href="http://www.virtualpcshow.com/" ><b>Virtual PC Show.com</b></a><br> Virtual PC.com is trying to turn and event such as Computerfest into a virtual computer mart. It's a 24 by 7 online market place for computer products. The advantages of the virtual show is that it's open year round, and you can shop from home, all live. You can bargain real time with vendors in a product chat room.</p> <p><a href="http://www.dma.org/sigs.html#Classic" ><b>Computer Museum Exhibit</b></a><br> Another place to revel in the high-tech past is the Computer Museum Exhibit at Computerfest. It's run by Gary Granger - it's his private collection including almost every key machine in the PC revolution.</p> <p><a href="http://www.gaspricewatch.com/" ><b>Gas Price Watch.com</b></a><br> One of the best ideas at Computerfest was the new web site Gas Price Watch.com. It's the creation of a local group of techies in Dayton who want to use the Internet to bring some market sanity to gasoline prices. The site now has over 55,000 gas stations in their database, and they're recruiting an army of civilian spotters to input local gas prices onto their web site. Their goal is to save consumers at least a billion dollars in gasoline costs.</p> <p><a href="http://www.microsoft.com/windows2000/default.asp?RLD=466" ><b>Microsoft Windows 2000</b></a><br> One of the most popular seminars at Computerfest was put on by Microsoft demonstrating the new Windows 2000. It has some cool new features such as the new self healing capability for when you accidentally delete a key system file. Win 2000 has also added some features from Internet Explorer and the Office Suite to the new operating system and it has new security features and a new game - 3D Pinball featuring DirectX-7. <p><a href="http://www.linux.org/" ><b>Linux</b></a><br> Another hot seminar were the Linux demonstrations.</p> <p><a href="http://linux.com/newsitem.phtml?sid=1&aid=5746" ><b>KDE</b></a><br> Several versions of Linux were being shown at Computerfest including one version called KDE.</p> <p><b>GIMP</b><br> One application coming online is a program called GIMP which is a Photoshop type program for doing digital image processing.</p> <p><a href="http://www.sun.com/staroffice/" ><b>Sun's Star Office</b></a><br> Sun now offers a free download of Star Office, a complete Linux based business suite including word processor, spreadsheet, graphics program, presentation program and more.</p> <p><a href="http://www.redhat.com/" ><b>Red Hat 6.1</b></a><br> The new versions of Linux like Red Hat 6.1, bridge the gap between the offer UNIX look and the newer GUI approach.</p> <p><a href="http://www.monarch.com/" ><b>Monarch Paxar</b></a><br> A unique peripheral for the Palm Pilot from a local Dayton, Ohio company called Monarch Paxar. Just slip your Pilot into the printer and you have an instant portable point of sale terminal that spits out receipts.</p> <p><a href="http://www.motorola.com/" ><b>Motorola Pentium PC</b></a><br> Used by the Dayton Police, the Motorola Pentium PC's are connected to the department's NT Server via radio network enabling officers in the field to receive information ten times faster than the old fashioned police radio.</p> <p><a href="http://www.wpafb.af.mil/" ><b>Wright Patterson Air Force Base</b></a><br> The computing center at the Air Force base is massive. Using computers from IBM, SUN, COMPAQ an SGI, they have computing power of over 600 gigaflops, and data storage of more than 600 terrabytes.</p> <p>The computing facility at the Aeronautical Systems Center is used to solve a variety of Defense Department problems. The Science Visualization Lab at Wright patterson Air Force Base, tests new fighter jets using high powered, big screen simulators in virtual wind tunnels.</p>
